Absolutely amazing! Extremely impressive work allround and some really fresh design too.

Awesome! Dragging it a bit too long maybe, otherwise really nice! Especially the opening with the building up of the hotels drew me in!

I'll be controversial and say it's not amazing. It's good, and one of the best of this year, but nothing earth shattering.

does it need any *.dlls cause it open and then close =\?

Best 64k since Panic Room! Great design, I like the clean look and the glossy materials and surfaces.

A bit too simple in some parts, but still a great 64kb!

@panic: d3dx9_40.dll

Also needs your monitor to support 1280x720 natively, *or*: run the intro from the command line with parameters. first parameter is screen width, second is height ("intro.exe 1280 1024" will give you the intro in 1280x1024).

Compared to Panic Room, the textures in this one are really poor, but it has the typical bombastic PP design and object show as well as good music, so it's the best 64k in 2009 so far, for sure!

Those "robo-things" didn't really work out imho, but the rest was very solid. 64k is back.
rulez added on the 2009-08-10 14:28:32 by tomaes tomaes
Thumbs up for the design and flow! Not many demos/dentros seems to have a theme in them, that really do work like this 64K got. The flow is nice and it compenhence some "seen before" effects in a new shade of light. But still, great production and quite calm for coming from PP. A big fat one from me!
rulez added on the 2009-08-10 14:30:28 by Xiny6581 Xiny6581
clean and competent.
im afraid it looked a bit too much like an upgraded 4k though - it needed better lighting (SSAO doesnt cut it here), the scenes were a bit too simplistic and the music+visuals tread a well worn path.
added on the 2009-08-10 14:39:09 by smash smash
Mostly a lot of blurry flickering ...things. Something went pretty wrong with the rendering on my GForce 8800 GTS.

I just noticed that I'm dumb. I always thought this was a demo (and was underwhelmed because I expected so much more from PP), until I noticed just now that it was a 64k. And now I feel just plain stupid. (*gives a silly smile and gives a straight thumb*)
